Zari throws shade at Hamisa
South Africa based Ugandan socialite Zari Hassan was this week busy throwing shade at Hamisa Mobetto days after her video dancing to 'JEJE' was shared on Instagram by their baby daddy Diamond Platnumz.
The mother of five shared a post via her Insta-stories that seemed to be an indirect attack on Ms Mobetto, insinuating that she was trying to chase clout with her dance video to Diamond's song.
Netizens where quick to link her post to what had transpired between Diamond and Hamisa- after years of ignoring each other on social media.
The post in question read; "Its not clout, but low self-worth, low self-esteem...know the difference."
It is public knowledge that Hamisa was the biggest reason for Diamond and Zari’s break up after she got pregnant for the WCB boss who was with Zari at the time.
Zari the Boss-lady also has a tendency of reacting to things or events surrounding her Baby Daddy indirectly, without mentioning names. It’s typical mama Tee. Is she still hurting? Uhondo lets you be the judge!

Speaking to her friend and actress Bridget Shighadi, the socialite clearly stated that she does not know any of Khali’s songs and that even after reading about what he had said about her, this was the first time she was she was even looking at his page.
Ms Monroe mentioned that she believes Khaligraph is doing well because he recently won an award.
“The guy apparently called me so many times and I never picked up. I rarely pick up phone calls but honestly I don’t even know any of Khaligraph’s songs but I think he’s doing well, he won an award. I swear, none of his songs to be honest. I swear to God yaani leo ndio nimeangalia page yake for the first time ever since I read that article,” she said.
“I know a lot of Octopizzo’s music, he’s one of my favorites. Octopizzo and Nyashinski are my favorite artistes in Kenya. Especially Nyashinski I was disappointed when he got married I had a crush on him,” added Huddah.
Madeni! Diamond sued over Sh15 million debt
Tanzanian singer Naseeb Abdul Juma alias Diamond Platnumz was this week dragged to court by his former Landlord identified as Maulidi Wandwe over a Sh15 million debt which translates to (Tsh337Million).
Reports indicated that the WCB President was sued over failure to pay his former landlord the money in question meant to repair the building that used house his Studio and offices in Sinza before shifting to Mbezi Beach in Dar es Salaam.
A number of local media houses in Tanzania, reported that Platnumz and his team left Wandwe's house in bad shape after shifting his studio and he was supposed to take care of the renovations costs amounting to Sh15 million. His failure to do so, is what forced the landlord to go the Courts.
The Jeje Hit maker was supposed to show up in Court on Monday, but unfortunately he was out of the country (Tanzania) forcing the Judge to postponed the hearing of the case to March 18th 2020, a date that has now passed.
However, most governments have been shutting down operations and it still remains unclear if the case will continue with operations being stopped in order to contain the spread of Coronavirus (COVID-19).
Diamond’s manager tested positive of the same and he (Chibu) is currently on self-quarantine awaiting test results.
